As I prepare this week to be a mother for the fourth time and give birth to my long-awaited first little girl, Gracie, it pains me that there is a dark cloud hanging above her pending delivery.
While I know you can't be with us right now as we are rushing around from campus to campus hosting events and training leaders before the school year comes to an end, I want to give you an inside glimpse of just how important Students for Life groups are.
Students for Life of America, the nation’s largest youth pro-life organization with over 800 groups on college and high school campuses, is announcing a brand new initiative aimed at young, pro-life adults that will continue to involve them in the pro-life movement beyond their high school and college experiences.

TCNJ Students for Life are passionate about defending their pro-life views and educating others about life issues, like abortion. Even more so, they are courageous. This group has time and time again persevered on a campus particularly hostile to pro-life views and demonstrations.

This week shock-jock Michael Voris posted an apocalyptic video questioning the entire pro-life movement based upon supposed evidence that abortion numbers aren’t declining.

Therefore, he said, these must be added to the million+ abortions every year, which basically comes out to a number that shows abortions are not declining.
